“The squad is pretty thin” – Some Spurs fans react to the lack of transfer activity

Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League club in history not to sign a player in two successive transfer windows.

A whole host of names were linked with a potential switch to North London, but the reality is that there are no new arrivals.

Mousa Dembele departed for China midway through the window when he made the switch to China, while there were also loan moves for the likes of Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Kaziah Sterling and Anthony Georgiou.

Vincent Janssen’s future dominated the headlines in the build up to the window closing when he was linked with moves to the likes of Cardiff City, Burnley, Schalke and Real Betis but the player who has no future at the club will remain in limbo until the summer.

Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi was linked with a deadline day switch to Spurs (Daily Mirror), with the player said to be keen to make the move but he instead joined Crystal Palace.

Some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on another quiet transfer window.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Letting Dembele go was a bad mistake given the circumstances of our never ending injuries.
    But Levy does not dictate to Poch. Our chairman is more than willing to try and sanction
    anything Poch wants. And if Poch couldn’t see anyone available to improve the squad, then
    I accept that.
    OK. We have 14 PL games to go, and a minimum (hopefully) of 2 CL games.
    Our squad should be strong enough, and at least we’ll pretty much be over that absurd
    period since the 2nd December where we’ve played 2 games a week ever since!
    Harry could well be fit by the end of Feb, and ready for the 2nd Dortmund game as well as
    the PL run-in. Alli hopefully the same. There’s a lot to play for, and our squad, and rotation,
    will be protected as far as possible. Given the fact we’ve had no home for nearly two seasons,
    and absurd amounts of injuries at critical times throughout the whole season, I’d say we’ve
    done brilliantly.
